I have a 29 gallon tall tank with a regular fluorescent light, planted with lots of anubias, moss, java fern and crypt wendetii. Everything is doing well except for the java fern, which never grows well for me. However, I need some tall background plants to disguise the filter hoses. The stem plants I put in there as a temporary solution aren't doing well. What kind of tall plant can I use in a low light set up?

A stand of anacharis can hide a heater - just keep far away enough to avoid melting - and overlapping stems of hygro tiger could screen the filter intake.

Under low light the tiger won't show its stripes, staying green.

Cryptocoryne spiralis is nice. Looks like vallisneria with a bad hair day. More interesting and less uniform. It won't corkscrew under low light, so keep that in mind when looking at pictures. If you can grow C. wendtii it should do fine.

I like my Ludwigia Repens and Myriophyllium Mattagrossense. Both grow well for me in low/med light.
